THE GEOLOGY AND THE FLORAL AND FAUNA OF THE BOISE BASIN 

Geology

The first section attempts to provide information concerning the geological formation of the Boise Basin from it's pre-historic beginnings to the present.  It was this formative prosess that led to the beauty we see today.  This was the prosess that later brought thousands to Idaho.
 
Flora and Fauna
 
 
I will attempt to describe the beginnings and progression of the animal and plant life which has led to the wide variety of life we see in the basin now.
 
Again, I am no expert on these subjects other than through the standard higher education courses I attended many years ago.  However, spending a lifetime observing and experiencing the geological and life prosesses in the basin has given me insight that few others can claim.  I have listened to the stories of the old timers who remember how these things were and how they have changed.  I have seen the migrations of the animals who live here.  I have seen how they respond to the seasons and to changes in their environment. 
 
I have seen how the plant life has responded to the environment in which it lives.  I have seen the changes in that plant life as more and more people visit and live in the basin.  Some of it good, some not so good.
